My May Trip to AG Place Chicago! – By IrishAG

 

Yesterday, my Mom and I went to AG Place Chicago!  It was awesome.  I took some pictures, but they aren’t very good quality.  🙂

I’m going to start from the 2nd floor.  (GOTY, Truly Me, avenue AG.)

5-11-16 037

Love the faux flowers!  One of the reasons we went was to see Lea in person.  In some pictures she looked cute, in others she looked mean.  When I saw her in person, she wasn’t my cup of tea.

5-11-16 0345-11-16 035

I love her celebration dress, though!

5-11-16 0335-11-16 031

All the old GOTYs.  This is actually one of my favorite parts of the store!  😀

5-11-16 050

I love this!  Julia is in the soccer outfit.  🙂

5-11-16 049She’s so cute in pigtails and that outfit!  XD

5-11-16 047

Her hair is perfect!  o_O  And that doll is really pretty.

5-11-16 043#47 is beautiful in the Jazz dress!

5-11-16 0115-11-16 009

The cute pet scene.  I LOVE the way they braided Julia’s hair.  🙂

5-11-16 0065-11-16 0035-11-16 002

Avenue AG has been changed from Paris and Grace’s treats to Brazil and Lea’s treats.  The cupcakes were adorable.  😀

Now to the 1st floor!  (Historical, GOTY, library.)

5-11-16 0195-11-16 0215-11-16 023

Josefina’s beautiful collection.  🙂  Her Holiday outfit was on sale for $19.  I wonder if she’ll be retired when Melody comes out.  😦

5-11-16 018

All the Beforever characters.

5-11-16 022

Samantha’s collection.

5-11-16 024

This was in the middle of Samantha’s section.  A lot of the Beforever characters were mixed like this, which I thought was weird.

5-11-16 027Tatlo, Kaya’s dog, in her interactive section.  When I saw this, I freaked out because I thought it was real.  🙂

5-11-16 028Love Addy’s hat!

5-11-16 025

Maryellen’s adorable diner!

5-11-16 026I had to take a photo of Maryellen’s perfect curl.  😀

5-11-16 054

My Mom and I also went to Amorino, a gelato place.  If you get a cone there, they will make the gelato into a flower!  The brown one is mine, and the pink one is my Mom’s.  🙂

5-11-16 055

Pretty!

So that was our trip!  Reviews of our purchases coming soon.  😉

Have you ever gone to an AG Place?

AG put together rooms with combos of all the collections.  My fave is the photo on the right.

10-29-15 054

At first I thought this was a real girl, but then I saw the stitching on her neck!  🙂

10-29-15 06010-29-15 061

Yep.  Totally agree with that quote.

10-29-15 055

I don’t even like Bitty Baby, but that little girl is too cute to pass up!

Whew, that was long!  Do you like the Holiday Catalogue?
